does the growth message like ronald reagan, he could win the election but it has to be truly credible and not appear as though he is apologetic. >>neil: what i learned on fox business network talking to these two retired senators, they recognize how surprisingly easy it is just to talk about a democrat in the indicate of sam nunn, slowing down the growth of entitlements and from senator bennett, a republican, closing loop hes and credits that allow some not to pay taxes at all. ronald reagan would tell you, it is not a tax hike. however, we get so dog mattic and fixed in our positions we are piling up more to the debt because of this. >>guest: exactly. sam nunt did not mention, just talked about the trajection but if we get the broad based simpson-bowles, you will get so much fatter growth people will get jobs and be taken off we because they have good, high paying jobs and will go to the tax roles rather than being on the welfare roles. when people are moving to the tax roles rather than welfare roles you can reduce tax rates, or welfare spending and bring it back faster. >>neil: it

away from his record. if if you ask where is the middle class going next year after the election, you have -- i would say that the middle class is going to get maybe even worse off because we look like we are head for a real slowdown in the economy and the word recession next year has been used frequently. >> it's being bantered about. stu varney, thank you so much. bill: joe biden was in charlotte, north carolina making that comment. 15 electoral votes. a look at how he succeed, 4.3 million votes cast in the state. president obama won by 14,000 votes. he carried a 100,000 vote margin in charlotte which is where mr. biden was. he had a narrow margin of victory, more than any other state. in charlotte unemployment is above 10%. we'll see how they do, it's tough to win against those numbers. jamie: those numbers are seen in many places,en it will be interesting to hear about what they say about those swing states that count. bill: a new report on events leading up to that deadly terrorist attack in libya. did the government deny requests for additional security. jamie: there are concern

a mistake. he's not going to win the election with this debate. what he can do is to start setting a whole new narrative for him in this debate. that's what he can expect to accomplish. in the president's case, the president is going to have to deal with the economic numbers, have to deal with the libya issue. >> as a debater, how do you rate president obama? >> i think he's very good. i think both of them are playing the game. president obama was saying something the other day, i'm not really a good debater. gee, i don't really -- >> they're both very, very smart guys. >> if you talk about the top 1%, intellect, these guys are in the top 1%. there's nothing to choose between among intellect. there's a lot to choose between them on policy. i hope they get into a good discussion of policy because from my point of view i think romney would get the better of that but i'm not sure. we'll see. >> we looked at past debates. some folks seem to get into trouble when they start debating over the debate rules themselves. i want to play a quick montage of stuff. >> i have to let senator obama respond

[applause]. >> . >> mike: thank you, thank you very much. what a great audience we've got here in the studio and welcome to huckabee from the fox news studios in new york city. all right, the biggest story this week in politics was the first presidential debate in denver. the first view, even among the staunchest obama supporters was that romney won the debate convincingly and one left of center commentator four years ago had a tingle up his leg hearing obama speak. waste in a such a meltdown over the poor performance this time he had a tingle run down his leg because he wet his pants. (laughter) >> and some of the excuses to try to explain the president not being much better than the empty chair that clint'swood revealed to us were simply bizarre. al gore thought it was the altitude of denver. i think the former vice-president may have been a little high. but the most ridiculous excuse of all was
to redefine himself as well as redefining the election. >> reporter: an election only 35 days away but still far from over. and the first debate is on the domestic issues that are defining this election. >>> ryan moore in washington. thanks. >>> the candidates for the u.s. senate seat in massachusetts, scott brown and elizabeth warren, debated for the second time last night. the two were combative as they staked out opposite issues from jobs and bringing troops home. david gregory from "meet the press" as moderator, they clashed over brown's claim of partisan independence. >> if he's re-elected, that increases the odds that the republicans will control the senate and that he can block president obama's agenda. >> if you're going to comment on my record, i would at least have you refer to it -- >> can we just -- >> exme. >> i'm he not a student in your classroom. please let me respond. thank you. >> recent polls before the debate show elizabeth warren with a small lead over scott brown. >>> and now here's a look at some other stories making news early today in america. joyriding may land one

wanted to say states have rights. but what about the city's rights to elect their own elected officials? and i guess follow their own destiny? winnie's a government interference, i understand you are talking about the federal. but i heard mitt romney say states' rights. is it the right of the state to come into the cities and overthrow the local municipalities? if that is big government, small government. i do not know. i think they should have the right to control their own destiny in their own city. it is on the ballot in november. and i am telling everybody in michigan to a vote it down. we did not need dictatorship. it is a dictator bill. host: thank you. on twitter -- the government to do its job, maintain the general welfare. from debate news, the numbers are and on how many watched on television. more than 67 million watched the first presidential debate. nearly 16 more watched four years ago for about 12 of the 67 who watched president obama square off against mitt romney were between 18-34. fox news channel average 10.4 million viewers. a big improvement over 8.2. cnn clock abo
, it's going to be a jump-ball election three or four weeks from now. it's going to be within two or three points. it's that close out in the country. i think tonight's debate, though, matters a great -- >> let me stop you there, mike. so you do think it's still going to be a jump ball because obviously mitt romney's had a horrific september. his own people say, man, what a horrible month. but we still have a long way to go here. you think it's still going to be a jump ball? >> yes, i do. i do. because of two elements that polls can't really get to, the level of anxiety in this country about daily life and about the immediate future of our economy, and the level of disappointment in barack obama held by obama supporters who will vote for him, but they are still disappointed in him. so those two things alone, i think, are going to result in a jump-ball election. but to the debate tonight, i do think it's going to be important for mitt romney. the reason i think it's going to be important for mitt romney is i think very few of us have an understanding of the ripple effect of the 47%
. a lot of things we talk about, larry, is turnout when it comes to this election and how important turnout really is going to be. do debates affect turnout? >> absolutely because the turnout battle is really a battle of enthusiasm in the two party bases and, you know the romney people have been pretty frank. paul ryan was very frank over the weekend in saying the ticket has had a tough couple weeks. when you have a tough couple weeks you're enthusiasm level can decline. a good performance in a presidential debate can gin party enthusiasm. that may happen on wednesday for either side. we'll have to see what transpires in the debate. jenna: we always have to wait to actually talk about it until thursday morning. >> that's right. jenna: let me go back to that appearance point that you made. just by having mitt romney on stage with the president, many say that is what is going to make him look more presidential as you mentioned maybe create more support or inspire certain folks out there. "real clear politics" had an interesting article and unnamed democrat was quoted and i will quote

in this election. and that's why i'm running for a second term. that's what we need. now, my opponent has been trying to do a two-step and reposition and got -- got an extreme makeover. [applause] but the bottom line is his underlying philosophy is the top-down economics that we've seen before. he thinks that if we just spend another $5 trillion on tax cuts that yes, skewed toward the wealthiest, if we get rid of more regulations on wall street, then our problems will be solved. jobs and prosperity will rain down from the sky. the deficits will magically disappear. we will live happily ever after. [laughter] even though he's been proposing this plan for months now, he's had a little trouble explaining just how it would work without blowing a hole in the deficit or making middle class families pick up the tab. the other night he ruled out asking millionaires and billionaires to pay even a dime more in taxes. he said there's no way that he would close the loophole that gives big oil companies billions each year in corporate welfare. ending tax breaks for corporations that move jobs and profits o
